Woman arrested in televised drug raid leaves county jail A woman arrested on a live national television special was released from the Harris County jail after a judge gave her six months' probation on a drug charge, according to the Associated Press. County-Court-At-Law Judge James Anderson gave Terry Rouse, 29, six months deferred adjudication for the misdemeanor charge of delivery of marijuana. State District Judge Norman Lanford had given.Ms. Rouse one year's deferred adjudication on two other misdemeanor drug charges Monday, and then immediately terminated it by crediting her with time already served. Anderson can terminate the probation in 30 days. Ms. Rouse can leave the county and state as long as she can prove within 30 days that she has established residency, has a job and is not breaking any laws, Anderson said. An attorney for Ms Rouse said Anderson had earlier agreed to rule the same as Lanford on the charge, and alleged the judge had bowed to pressure from the county and sheriff Johnny Klevenhagcn. "We had an agreement all the way around." said defense attorney Mary Heafner. "He i Anderson) is scared of the press and the sheriff." Anderson denied he was influenced in his decision. Ms. Rouse said her first priority was to leave Houston, so she could get away from Klevenhagen. "I don't like having to worry about somebody trying to set me up and put me in jail." she said. Ms. Rouse was arrested on drug charges during a Geraldo Rivera television special, "American Vice: The Doping of a Nation," broadcast live Dec. 2, 1986.
